Global Links between Corruption & Human Rights

Corruption affects every single aspect of countries affected by it. Although we all know that corruption is pernicious, we don't often think about it as a violation to human rights.  This session aims to share a bit of my research on the links between these two areas both from the point of view of the violations to human rights but also on the use of human rights-based approaches to identify and address corrupt practices. 

Gabriela Rivera is a lawyer with over nine years of experience in human rights, women’s rights, strategic litigation, and security and justice sector reform. She also has significant experience working with victims of war crimes, women in prison and their children, victims of gender-based violence and people in various vulnerable situations. Garbiela is a participant in the Nobel Women's Initiative Mentorship Program, a professional intern at the Center for Justice and International Law, and a Rotary International Peace Fellow in 2017-2018.
